I love brown boots. Black leather is something I tend to struggle with. Its just so tough, and I’m so not. Not to say I don’t have my fair share of black boots too, but I love how brown softens an outfit. And throws an outfit off in a way that looks a little more strategic than a black boot. Plus they look good a little beat up, and if you live in NYC, you wear your shoes HARD. I personally prefer suede, but do own one (ok two) leather pair for inclement weather. A selection below:

Some brown booted outfits from the past few weeks. Not sure about you but this week’s almost-holidays-mad-dash has got me looking like this. So apologies for the state of my ponytail and my half-closed eyes.
Below is an outfit I put together for my first night out to dinner post covid, post becoming a parent over two years ago. Would still wear it (and do still wear it all the time). It’s a similar formula to the above photo but with kick-flare as opposed to skinny jean. Fail safe outfit.
